How much should I budget for food?
There are many styles and price ranges for food in Amman. Groceries are affordable, although meat prices may seem relatively high, and small shops, conveniences stores, and vegetable stands are found on most streets. Larger supermarkets regularly offer deals and carry a wide selection of international and health conscious foods (but at a higher base price of course). There are falafel stands (a sandwich usually costs about 30 qirsh) and coffee shops, as well as Arab and Western style chain restaurants. If you eat out for two meat-meals a day, you can expect to pay about 150 to 250 JD per person per month. If you cook, the monthly cost can drop significantly, to perhaps even less than 100 JD per person.
